Obama pledges to never ever just shut up and go away

US president Barack Obama has said he may speak out after leaving office if he feels his successor Donald Trump is threatening core American values.

…he added, if an issue “goes to core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideals, then I’ll examine it when it comes”.

By convention, former presidents tend to leave the political fray and avoid commenting on their successors.

President Narcissist cares not for your petty conventions.          h/t tom_billesley
